Earthquakes showing Man’s Complacency

October 23, 2012,

For centuries, and in recent decades in particular, it has been accepted belief that man rules the world and that the assets of the world exist principally to support our needs and desires. The result of our greed has been the careless, thoughtless plundering of the assets of our beautiful planet with a general assumption that they will be there always, that it does not matter, and man will triumph always over the vagaries of Earth. It has been a shock to many, therefore, to learn that the Lorca earthquake in Spain in 2011 was probably caused by the removal of groundwater for irrigation, and that the one in L’Aquila, Italy, in 2009 should have been foreseen by local scientists, who instead had disregarded and minimised the warning signs over many months. In both cases, and particularly with the conviction of the scientists for multiple manslaughter, it may, hopefully, lead to an era where there is far greater respect for Gaia’s resources and her power. The timing of these events is interesting: the warnings about the hazards of interfering with Earth or taking her for granted come just as a major expansion of drilling and fracking is planned for on land and off shore in many countries, and the desire to build ever more towns and cities for an ever-growing population is requiring more water extraction than ever before. We meddle with nature at our peril, and time may prove this to be, emphatically, so.  ]]>
